Some people may have thought that, but it certainly was not the general thought of society.
He was such a kidder!
Some people may have thought that, but it certainly was not the general thought of society. . . .
Actually that was the prevailing thought until the 1960’s. Twenty years before that it was nearly universal. I was there and remember those days well. I would imagine that over 90% of America would have answered a poll question in the 1940’s about where did black skin come from and they would have said it was the mark of Cain. I’m not trying to be mean just showing that perceptions change and the beliefs of society also change.
I am not trying to make an argument supporting or not supporting anyone, just relaying facts so you can make your own more valid judgment.
